  1. HIV infection among patients with acute pelvic inflammatory disease at the Kenyatta national hospital, Nairobi, Kenya.

    Article - En anglais

    AIDS continues to exert considerable strain on the economy, as well as social aspects of our lives.

    Previous studies have identified the categories of people most at risk of contracting and developing HIV infection and AIDS.

    In this study, 20.9% of women with acute pelvic infection at the Kenyatta National Hospital, were found to be seropositive for HIV, much higher than the general population in Kenya.

    Though there was no direct correlation between one's age and serological status, most of the women with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) were young, quite sexually active, and involved with several partners. 49.0% of the entire group and 53.7% of the women who were seropositive, were married.
